Moneyfields owe Uxbridge as players dig deep

Have your say

Moneyfields hit six of the best to crush Hallen in the FA Vase.

Miles Rutherford’s side banished their poor knockout form with a 6-0 win over the Bristol side.

Strikers Warren Hunt and Steve Hutchings were both among the goals in the rout.

‘That was a very good result, considering we were missing four players,’ said Rutherford.

‘Hallen have a good record in the Vase but our front three caused them problems all game long.

‘We made them look second best for much of the match and they are a far better side than that.’

Bobby Scott made it 1-0 to Moneys and Hunt added two more in the first half, with Hutchings also on the mark before half-time.

Hutchings fired his second on the hour mark and then saw his cross-shot turned in by a Hallen defender for 6-0.

Horndean recorded a fantastic 3-1 extra-time win over Wessex premier leaders Christchurch.

Dave Carter’s side led through Nathan Paxton’s 38th-minute goal, with just six minutes of normal time remaining.

The hosts quickly hit back to take the game to extra-time.

But Horndean shrugged off their disappointment to regain control in the second period.

Chamal Fenelon restored their lead and, after the big striker was brought down inside the area, Simon Stone converted a penalty for 3-1.

‘It was a great display and a fully-deserved win,’ said Horndean manager Dave Carter.

‘We didn’t let our heads drop and dominated extra-time.’

Hayling United paid the price for another slow start as they crashed out of the Vase 3-2 at Cadbury Heath.

The Humbugs found themselves two goals adrift in the first 10 minutes, before Lee Tigwell struck home a long-range volley.

Hosts Cadbury restored their two-goal lead in the second half, and Mike Turvey’s last-minute effort proved only a consolation.

‘We keep falling asleep at the start of games and have to do something about it,’ said Humbugs manager Steve Poulton.

Petersfield Town pushed high-flying Wessex premier outfit Downton all the way before losing 2-1, with Callum Coker netting their goal.

AFC Portchester cruised to a 5-1 win over Lymington Town in the Wessex League Cup.
